AIDS Response Effort, Inc. (ARE) celebrated 20 years of doing business on May 24, 2011. While in the past 20 years the agency has felt its share of growing pains; today the agency is situated on a stable foundation of professionalism, serving a diverse population and committed to the protection of confidential health information of the consumers that we serve.
We are located in Winchester, Virginia and service the Lord Fairfax Health District. This district includes:
Stable – It is no small feat that a small not-for-profit survives for 20 years. It has taken the effort of many passionate Board members, Staff and volunteers working tireless hours together to provide the quality program that delivers services to our region today. It is through these individuals and the close working collaborations of many agencies that have come to recognize the success of the agency.
Professionalism – ARE is committed to the delivery of a quality product each time we are called on to serve. We take great pride in and celebrate the qualified staff hired to serve you. They each come with their own unique style and years of experience.
Diverse – through the years ARE has served a very diverse population. Today a 1/3 of the individuals served are hetro-sexual females. We have served Caucasian, Afro-American, Asian, Native American, and Pacific Islanders. While we currently serve only a small group of Hispanics; it is one of our regions fastest growing ethnic populations. Cultural diversity is a sensitive issue each of the staff are aware of and address with confidence.
Confidential – ARE is bound by HIPPA guidelines in the handling of and protection of consumer health information. We take great care in the efforts made to protect each individual’s private information.
